|Bio and Links|
|I live in Australia and have long been fascinated by the American Civil War.|
I have collected Civil War memorabilia for over 40 years.
In 1979, I purchased some memorabilia from the 117th. New York Infantry, which led to my interest in the regiment.
I have been obsessively collecting memorabilia, surfing the web and FAG for any mentions to add to my research files.
Thanks to many kind FAG volunteers, I have been able to request dozens of photographs to add to my Virtual Cemetery of members of the regiment.
I am currently adding names to the list. I have over 1,000 to add so far.
I still have about 500 veterans to locate.
To be able to achieve all this half a world away from the action, is simply unbelievable.
If anyone has a relative who served in the 117th., or any information, I would be most happy to hear from you.

I have individual photos of the other family members in the Garrett plot. Are you interested in them?

Hi, I wanted to let you know that I tried to find Mr. Wilson's gravesite today. I spent 45 minutes looking, and could not find it. It started raining hard, so I had to leave, but I will try again. :)

I sort of figured either you or Kathy would have placed him on Find A Grave. I have sent you the edit to connect him to his parents. There is a blurb about him that I posted to his brother, Jerry H. Worden, Find A Grave#61330185's memorial.

Glad I could help. I took the photo about a month ago and could not read the date. I also added his wife Mary Mowers.

You sure are welcome Bob. Wish there had been a stone for you
to see. Best to you down under, Bob!
|S. Wright||RE: W B Wright|
William does not have a memorial that I know of in Maple Flats Cemetery, Vienna, NY. I still can't prove he was a brother of Frederick Wright (my great-great grandfather. Thank you.

Might be as simple as a misspelling. Try and call the cemetery office.708-449-8300
|Mike Serpa||RE: William Lafayette Ames.|
'Tis true. Only a hair out of place! Glad you like the photo. Thanks for writing.
|Jay Boone||RE: Pullman photo request.|
Not sure if you are interested, but I added a number of other Pullman's that are buried in the same lot in Section A. If you would like me to transfer their memorial pages to you let me know.
